Abstract
A trimolecular liquid crystalline mixture of monomers was photopolymerized while being subjected to macroscopic orientation via surface contact or continuous application of a magnetic field. Polymerization kinetics were not influenced by the macroscopic orientation, and crosslinked networks were rapidly produced. Both IR dichroism measurements and x-ray diffraction analysis indicated that oriented networks were generated when polymerization was conducted from a nematic phase.
